    Hi...

    I'm thinking that the easiest and fastest would be to draw them as lines using glLineStipple to generate the gaps bewteen drops. Since you probably don't want to draw a drop for each element of rain because of the speed considerations, you could just use short lines. This might also give the impression of motion blur to the drops too.

    Worth a shot

    or you might want to handle each 'streak' of rain as a particle. but instead of using a quad or triangle for the particle use a line instead. you would draw the line from the previous location of the particle to the current position of the particle. just a suggestion :P
